After a month of various clues and endless speculation, the Czech broadcaster has finally revealed the seven contestants in their internet based national final ESCZ 2020. The selection has its own slogan #UnfoldYourDream. Barbora Mochowa and Pam Rabbit are returning to compete from last year’s edition. The songs will be released on January 20 and the online voting will commence!
For those of you who have been following the selection in recent years, two names will pop up — Barbora Mochowa and Pam Rabbit. Barbora was a strong fan favorite with her Lana Del Rey style ballad “True Colors”. Pam brought some cool beats with “Easy to Believe”.
Czech Listeners are, however, more familiar with Olga Lounová and Ben Cristovao. Both of them have garnered millions of views for their songs, which are mainly in the Czech language. Olga is know both for singing happy and fun songs as well as touching tunes. Ben Cristovao is one of the most popular rappers in the Czech Republic. Though his genre is not so popular at Eurovision, he definitely has it in him to change that.
Then we have Karelll, who is a relatively new to the Czech music scene, but who has already managed to reach audiences with his modern production and interesting pop songs.
There’s also a duo in the form of Elis Mraz and Cis T. Elis is a Czech pop singer with her own style and she’s teamed up with Cis T, who is a Slovak rapper. This could be a really interesting international cooperation.
Last but not least is a new born band We All Poop. It seems that these four guys have made a band just for ESCZ and with such a name they will get instant attention. I guess we now know whose genre is “planned coincidence punk pop”.
